One summer, years ago, we spent several weeks making things out of newspapers. The book Crafting with Newspapers by Vivienne Eisner was our guide.
The book is now out of print, but if you ever have a chance to buy a used copy, be sure to get it — you’ll get lots of craft mileage out of it, especially for those long, lazy summer days when there’s “nothing to do.”
Here are some of the items we made and showed at the Mercer County Fair and at the Muscatine library.
All made from ordinary newspapers.
